While He Was Krogering

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell celebrated becoming Kentucky's longest-serving U.S. Senator yesterday by letting Bill Goodman interview him for KET at the University of Louisville's McConnell Center.

In the course of the interview, McConnell noted that President-elect Barack Obama had called McConnell on his cell phone Friday while McConnell was grocery shopping at Kroger. That's the second time Obama has called McConnell at Kroger.

Many of us get phone calls at Kroger. Usually it's one of my boys calling to remind me to pick up the Tostitos. So the thought of strolling down the produce aisle and answering the phone to find the leader of the free world on the other end -- it's just surreal.
